It’s been a week since John Prine died. The past few days I have been listening to his eloquent lyrics, raspy voice, and humorous anecdotes on a continuous Spotify loop. Rather you’re a long-time fan or new to John Prine’s extensive work, here are a few of my favorite songs and video clips. Enjoy.
RIP in John.
